Bob Always Looked Great in a Uniform

TCM will be showing Night Flight (1933) Friday, December 9th at 8:00 p.m. PST.  Bob's part in the movie isn't nearly as large as one would wish, but..."what there is is choice!"  It is basically a John and Lionel Barrymore movie with guest stars Helen Hayes, Clark Gable, Myrna Loy and Bob.

Bob portrays a pilot, one of his few action roles.  Of course he is still our lovable playboy, making a great entrance at 8 minutes into the movie.  The two-minute scene with its pre-code banter between Bob and his "girl" makes the movie worth watching!  He has a couple more scenes later in the movie, so don't give up on the movie.  It is too bad Clark, Helen, Myrna and Bob do not have any scenes together.  That would have helped a somewhat weak movie.  And it definitely needs more Bob!!

Am showing the above blow-up of Bob's face, well, just because he looks so great in the uniform.
